They mentioned on the commentary last night that Alf Ramsey was 16 months younger in 1966 than Southgate is now. I always thought he was ancient.

Similarly, these two sprightly old coffin dodgers were 31 and 29 when this photo was taken:

Make the most of it, they're talking about me going home within the next day or two, albeit under strict supervision (a.k.a. house arrest.). .............get building that ark.

The Scottish. :)

Imagine your nation being so **** at football, the only thing you have to celebrate during a World Cup, is Englands elimination.





World Cups qualified for in the 21st century England: 5 Togo: 1 Scotland: 0


It's not even irritating, and I know it'll only be a minority, bless em.

^ It seems to be a significant minority. Same with the Irish and Welsh. Remember in 2016 when England went out and Wales celebrated like they'd won it.




I don't get it. Imagine your own country being that **** that you can only get joy from watching another country fail to win.

TBH, I was pretty pleased when the Germans went out, but I didn’t quite feel the need to dance around a pub by way of celebration.

So was I, but at least we had a team at the World Cup.

Yes, but it's different with the Germans, because a) they always bloody win, b) the war, and c) there's a specific term for taking pleasure at Germany's misery.

In truth, had I been at a pub when Germany went home, I probably would have danced around.

Put up a rope swing in the garden for the kids. I may or may not have just tested it for the last 15 minutes, whilst making Tarzan noises as I swung.

^ I may or may not have embarrassed myself last week swinging along a zip line that was designed for children, and not for an adult of 14st+.

I don't wanna come off as a smug ****hole even more than usual, but Brighton is a very excellent place to be on a sunny Friday afternoon.
